meet baby grayson “gray.”

Where to begin? I know I don’t normally post tons of personal posts, so I apologize for two in a row, but we have had a lot going on in our world! On August 12th at 6:29am, we welcomed our sweet little boy into the world – Grayson “Gray” Thomas. He was 8lbs 6oz and absolute perfection! We have been enjoying lots of snuggles and getting to know our little man for the past 5 weeks, it’s crazy how fast they grow! Without further ado, I wanted to introduce him to the world. Our maternity, birth and newborn photos were captured by my good friend and super talented photographer – Kimberly Brooke. We are so thankful for her beautiful work and how she has captured the beginning of this crazy journey for us.

maternity leave.

As many of you know, my husband and I are preparing for the arrival of our son later this month. This is our first addition to the family and we could not be more happy and excited!! I will be going on maternity leave starting today to finish preparing for little Grayson (aka “Gray”) and will start accepting portraits/weddings again in mid October. We will still be responding to emails, but I appreciate your patience as I may need a little extra time.

I also wanted to share some of my gorgeous maternity photos captured by Kimberly Brooke Photographic. I’m lucky enough to be able to call her one of my dearest friends and also lucky that she beautifully captured the beginning of this crazy journey for my husband and I. She did such an amazing job! And the beautiful flower crown was made by another dear friend – Ashlyn with Sweet Magnolia Floral Studio – loved it!

Keep an eye out for pictures of our little one in the weeks to come!

rebecca & james – austin wedding photography.

I’m so excited to share this beautiful wedding with you! Rebecca & James were so perfect together (as evidenced by his ridiculously sweet speech to Rebecca that definitely brought a few tears!) and had such an amazing time celebrating with their friends and family – I was so honored to capture it! Love their venue – the unique and gorgeous Three Points Ranch and the details were fabulously coordinated by Jacklyn with Something to Celebrate.

Enjoy some of my favorites!
